Public, Private, Protected Symposium

at UC Berkeley

Joy Ko and Kyle Steinfeld

This symposium takes stock of the current state of geometric and algorithmic literacy in architectural design education, and seeks to understand the evolving dynamic between increasingly powerful tools of design and the empowerment of designers.

Decod.es Geometry Library

Joy Ko and Kyle Steinfeld

A platform-independent computational geometry library targeting architectural designers, and built upon the strategies of host-independence, domain-specificity, and context-appropriate abstraction.

Decod.es for Grasshopper

Kyle Steinfeld

A visual-programming interface for the Decod.es geometry library.

Geometric Computation

Joy Ko, Kyle Steinfeld

Geometric Computation: Foundations for Design describes the mathematical and computational concepts that are central to the practical application of design computation in a manner tailored to the visual designer. Uniquely pairing key topics in code and geometry, this book develops the two key faculties required by designers that seek to integrate computation into their creative practice: an understanding of the structure of code in object-oriented programming, and a proficiency in the fundamental geometric constructs that underlie much of the computational media in visual design.

Decod.es - CAADRIA

A Platform-Independent Computational Geometry Environment

Kyle Steinfeld & Joy Ko

This paper presents three strategies host-independence, domain-specificity, and context-appropriate abstraction for the design of a textual programming environment supporting computational architectural design that more effectively addresses the needs implied by common practices within this community.
